Based on the procedure types, the global knee cartilage repair market is segmented into arthroscopic chondroplasty, autologous chondrocyte implantation, osteochondral grafts transplantation, cell-based cartilage resurfacing, implants transplant, microfracture and others.
Extensive resection of the cartilage leads to poor compliance of the chest, and permanent cartilage loss is associated with restrictive lung disease, chest fixation at the resected sites, calcification, osteophytic growth and in some, acquired asphyxiation chondroplasty. (1,3,10,13) Other complications of the Ravitch repair include anterior scar, and if the healing process is not resumed, there will be disastrous instability complications such as osteonecrosis, pseudarthrosis, nonunion, and sternal floating.
Failure of ACI has been previously defined [16] as subsequent operation that either (1) necessitated removal of the graft, (2) confirmed a loss of defect fill, or (3) violated the subchondral bone (e.g., abrasion chondroplasty, microfracture, drilling, unicompartmental arthroplasty, or total knee arthroplasty).
Currently, treatment options for cartilage defects include physiotherapy, external medication, intra-articular irrigation, chondroplasty, microfracture, and mosaicplasty.
If cartilage softening or delamination was present, a chondroplasty or microfracture was performed according to the size, stability, and depth of the lesion.[sup][15] These procedures are typically performed through the mid-anterior portal while visualizing through the anterolateral portal [Figure 1]c,[Figure 1]d,[Figure 1]e,[Figure 1]f.{Figure 1}
Patient underwent left knee arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy, chondroplasty, and subtotal synovectomy.
These techniques involve removal of loose bodies, drilling, debridement, abrasion chondroplasty, and fixation, with overall improvements in pain and range of motion in the short- and mid-term follow-up [16-19].
The global knee cartilage repair market segmentation is based on procedure types (arthroscopic chondroplasty, autologous chondrocyte implantation, cell-based cartilage resurfacing, implants transplant, microfracture, and osteochondral grafts transplantation, etc.).
Other chapters cover these therapies in use, biologics in bone healing, cellular chondroplasty for joint repair, and clinical decision-making and evaluation of various techniques.
Our debridement procedure included joint lavage, removal of discrete loose bodies, partial meniscectomy or judicious chondroplasty. Articular cartilage degeneration was graded according to the Outerbridge arthroscopic classification.

A number of options for the repair or replacement of focal cartilaginous lesions have been used arthrosopically including abrasive chondroplasty, subchondral drilling, micro-fracture, cartilage transplantation and autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) (Spahn et al 2008).
